Music superstar and current WWE on-screen character Bad Bunny is the new 24/7 Champion.

On tonight's episode of Raw, Bad Bunny pinned Akira Tozawa to win the WWE 24/7 title. Right before losing the title to Bad Bunny, Tozawa had pinned R-Truth to become 24/7 Champion.

Bad Bunny and Damian Priest were being interviewed backstage on tonight's Raw before they were interrupted by the commotion of Tozawa winning the 24/7 title from R-Truth. Tozawa celebrated his title win before bumping into Priest. Priest threw Tozawa into a production crate, then urged Bad Bunny to pin Tozawa and win the 24/7 title.

Bad Bunny will be the musical guest on this weekend's episode of Saturday Night Live. That was mentioned by Priest during their interview on tonight's Raw.

Bad Bunny, who is a pro wrestling fan, performed his song "Booker T" live at last month's Royal Rumble pay-per-view. He also took part in an angle with The Miz and John Morrison, hitting a crossbody from the top rope on them after they were eliminated from the men's Royal Rumble match by Priest.

Priest made his Raw debut the night after taking part in the Royal Rumble. Priest defeated The Miz on that show and defeated Angel Garza the following week, with Bad Bunny appearing with Priest both times as they continued to feud with Miz and Morrison.

In an interview with TVInsider earlier this month, Priest spoke about working with Bad Bunny:

People know me as a rock and heavy metal guy, but there are many times on Spotify I’ll put Bad Bunny radio on. I know his music and dig it. I really dig the person, too. We’re so similar. I was raised in the same town [Vega Baja] he was born in [in Puerto Rico]. We come from really tough upbringings. He’s done things his way and doesn’t care what others might say about him. I’m the same way.

He loves wrestling. We hit it off immediately when we met. There was a bond. Not just because we’re both entertainers, but because of heritage and things we like, and our personalities. It’s cool to be around him.
